It’s nearing the end of another year and, like clockwork, ABC has launched a new season of The Great Christmas Light Fight. Though it’s a seasonal staple, the ratings have never been very good. Will The Great Christmas Light Fight be cancelled or renewed for season nine? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
The Great Christmas Light Fight follows two judges — lifestyle expert Carter Oosterhouse and interior designer Taniya Nayak — as they assess the creativity and decorating skills of everyday people (albeit ones with an abundance of holiday cheer). Over the course of six episodes (shot in 2019), the duo considers those homes with occupants who take yuletide adornment to a whole new level. In the end, the winners are awarded a cash prize and the coveted “Light Fight” trophy.
